The Dust That Floats High In June

"It’s just a prank, calm down!"

When did harassing women become a prank? You can clearly see that this girl is trying to laugh it off even though she’s uncomfortable with it, and that is not okay. If I’m a feminazi for pointing this out, then so be it, I’m not going to tolerate this shit.

This Sam Pepper controversy is good. It’s good because he’s being called out on this ridiculous and misogynistic behaviour. FUN FACT: If you ever think that you have the right to touch a stranger on ANY part of their body without their consent, you’re wrong. That’s sexual harassment, plain and simple, and it’s completely wrong.

Fuck this guy. This guy is a despicable piece of shit. I hope all of these women press charges against him.

I just spent the last 5 hours playing the first 3 acts of Kentucky Route Zero, and seriously if you like games with amazing stories, kind of creepy surrealism, point and click adventures, text adventures, or computers, you’ll probably REALLY enjoy this game. It’s definitely a headphones-and-devote-an-evening-to-playing-no-distractions-dim-the-lights kind of game.

Saying anything about what happens would be rude of me.

The whole game feels like retelling a partially remembered, but riveting, dream where things could have been a nightmare but the horror is mostly nostalgic, like remembering a scary movie you saw as a kid but can’t recall the title or the premise, just shapes and sounds and a handful of disjointed scenes, but you’re remembering this during a dream that feels real and you can’t look at your hands and you’re floating a few feet from your body. Things make sense because that’s how things make sense in a dream. You do things as the come naturally and think “Of course it works this way, why would it work any other way” but if you had to explain why you can’t, not with words, it’s just a feeling. You can retell the events but not why they make you feel how you do, and you don’t even know how to describe how you feel. Finishing the third act was like waking from a nap where I hadn’t realized I fell asleep, but I had the most evocative dream. Strange and sleepy, murky, dark, beautiful. The game leaves me at a loss for the right kind of words, but the right words might not be real.

The colors, the visual style, the camera angles, the way the camera moves, the sound… oh the sound. There’s something comforting about the ambient sounds that remind me of falling asleep in the backseat of my parent’s car as a child. But also set me on edge, the way a crackling radio might burst into moments of clarity, the static giving way to an unexpected, unfamiliar voice. You jump and feel silly, then move on, forgetting. There’s a mystery to be solved, but you’re not sure what or why or how, you just keep going deeper as things become less and less clear but more and more interesting. Strange. Glimpses of things familiar, but strange. There’s bears on the third floor, but that’s not important.

This game hits me in all the right places.

I played the first three acts yesterday on a slightly hungover Sunday, and this really sums it up. Dreamlike in a way that should be unnerving (but instead… makes a weird sense?) and beautiful <3

If you like point and click adventure games, great art, and Welcome to Nightvale, you will love these games.

MAN i love anything and everything gothic americana like think about southwestern gothic with flickering motel lights and thieves and snakes hiding in sunset deserts, but also new england gothic with deep dark woods and bodies sunk into the bottom of freezing lakes, and appalachian gothic with dirty-feet tangle-haired children and small crumbling houses and the wind whistling eerily, and even midwest gothic with lonely tractors rusting away in the sunlight and endless plains and plains of vast nothingness as far as the eye can see, florida gothic (old bones sunk into the swamp), wisconsin gothic (the town’s been snowed in for weeks now, who knows what’s happening up there), california gothic (they don’t call ‘em ghost towns for nothing), colorado gothic (something’s living up in those mountains and it only comes out at night) and of course southern gothic to rule them all, a landscape of witchery, poverty, hellfire and damnation

Figured it was time to post this drawing, as I’m not sure when (if ever) it might be finished, or when I might even have something new to show next.

the purge is scary because its a time frame in which you could be the target for random, unimpeded & unpunished cruelty just for being in the wrong place + wrong time and youll be blamed for not being adequately prepared & alert 

if youre black and/or queer and/or trans this is also known as “every waking moment”

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace
